outfit post: Let's Get Nautical

Every year certain trends pop up like clock-work at certain times of the year. Each spring, you'll see Sailor and Nautical prints set sail from the racks at the shops to the shores of your closet. I am a sucker for a good nautical print- I love the Anchor and Nautical Wheel motifs, as well as the classic Breton stripe. I am wearing a thrifted cotton sweater with a BIG ship's wheel set in the middle of it, with the added detailing of a sailor collar, and it is the perfect foil to the bright but brisk days of spring.

I will now be on the look-out for my yacht.

Now Wearing: 
  • Red Knit Cap, Thrifted
  • Nautical Wheel Motif Vintage choker, (formerly a belt)  D.I.Y.
  • Nautical-Wheel Motif Cotton Sweater- Thrifted
  • Short-Shorts, Thrifted
  • We Love Colors Tights in Cardinal
  • Monaco Bay Espadrilles, Thrifted

Red at its best! The diy choker is so cool. And, naturally, it fits so wonderfully with everything else.

Heather Fonseca said...

So cute!!!! Love that sweater. I always steer clear of the nautical thing, not because I don't love it, I do, I just don't like mixing navy and black, and everything I own is black. Sigh.

Love,
Heather
